Bargaining Begins

Your bargaining committee met with the employer on May 28 and 29 to discuss a number of non-monetary items.

Bargaining was productive and meaningful, highlighted by agreement to Article 9, Time off for Union business. This article includes an amendment allowing for 1 hour without loss of pay for attending Union Annual General Meetings. This was the only Article on which agreement was reached.

The parties also spent considerable time discussing trust funds as they are utilized for regular employees and limited term employees.

Future Bargaining Dates

Bargaining will resume with meetings on June 21 and 22.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact a member of your bargaining team.
